Hosts and tournament favourites Brazil take on Chile in the first last 16 match of the 2014 World Cup.
Brazil secured top spot in Group A with a routine with over Cameroon, with Neymar scoring twice in a 4-1 win.
Neymar opened the scoring with a calm finish, before Cameroon exposed Brazil’s dodgy defence and Joel Matip equalised.
The Barcelona winger Neymar scored again to restore Brazil’s lead, before second half strikes from Fred and Fernandinho sealed the three points.
Brazil edged Mexico out for top spot on goal difference, after previously drawing with El Tricolour and beating Croatia in the tournament opener.
Chile themselves ended the tournament holders Spain’s reign, with a 2-0 victory in their second group game.
Their recent defeat to Holland condemned Chile to second spot in the group, meaning they face Brazil, instead of Mexico.
The loss to Holland was their worst performance of the tournament so far, despite a dominant first half display.
The two South American nations have met an incredible 70 times in the history of international football, with Brazil having a much better head to head record.
Chile have only beaten Brazil eight times in the history of the game, with their last win back in 2000.
Brazil have also knocked Chile out of the last two World Cup’s they’ve competed in, ironically both at the second round stage!
Fernandinho impressed off the bench against Cameroon and there has been calls for the Manchester City to start on the weekend.
Expect him to take the place of Paulinho, whose form was indifferent during the group stage for Brazil.
Fred’s goal against Cameroon means he is likely to keep his place ahead of Jo, whilst Hulk will probably edge out Willian and Ramires.
Arturo Vidal was rested for the Holland defeat, however he will return for the big match with the tournament favourites.
Alexis Sanchez and Eduardo Vargas will lead the line and look to cause David Luiz problems, who has been criticised for his performances so far.
Marcelo Diaz will be given the task of keeping an eye on Neymar or Oscar, dependent of who plays in the hole.
Brazil (4-2-3-1): Cesar, Alves, Luiz, Silva, Marcelo, Fernandinho, Luis Gustavo, Hulk, Oscar, Neymar, Fred
Chile (3-5-2): Bravo, Medel, Jara, Mena, Isla, Vidal , Aranguiz, Diaz, Silva; Sanchez, Vargas
